No14 Wicklow Sonnet

A place in my heart – Wicklow my Eden

Garden of Ireland no words will suffice

On hill vale and glen creatures are feeding

Knowing this place on our earth has no price

Oh dear Poulaphouca where cool waters spill

Avoca’s green vale where kites soar on high

On Slaney the kingfisher dives in the still

And Bray head once wept as those said goodbye

McHugh O’Byrne’s mountains climb to the stars

St Kevin his birds in old Glendalough

Primrose and bluebell by Dargle’s sweet bars

Such joys can be seen each hour of the clock

Heaven is close when you see Glenmalure

Ecstasy pouring where dreamers endure.

Tom Clancy.
